Not long ago, we told you about the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. Now, we can tell you something about what the new package will cost ... about $4,000 more than base Corvette.
After a quick call to General Motors PR to confirm the official pricing for the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette coupe and convertible (we like to confirm things at TCC), we learned that the folks at CorvetteBlogger.com had a real scoop. The site reported that pricing was announced today, but in fact, GM hasn't publicly released that information. Our source noted that 2010 pricing information will be released shortly.
According to the information leaked to the Corvette fan site by a dealer, prices are going up modestly, just $365.00. Here is what we learned about pricing for the 2010 Corvette Coupe and Convertible models:
- 2010 Corvette Coupe Base MSRP $49,880 including destination.
- 2010 Corvette Convertible Base MSRP $54,530 including destination.
- 2010 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe Base MSRP $55,720 including destination.
- 2010 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible Base MSRP $59,530 including destination.
Pricing for the 2010 Corvette Z06 and ZR1 wasn't included in the leaked information.
These prices remind us that the Chevy Corvette remains one of the greatest performance bargains on the planet. Importantly for these days as fuel prices edge up, the combination of the car's light weight, tall overdrive gears, and high-torque engine make for a responsible sports car. The 2009 Corvette effortlessly delivers mileage that would make many economy cars blush.
